HIV/AIDS data reveal nonrandom patterns that mirror ingrained patterns of racism, stigma, and discrimination that create multiple marginalities and vulnerabilities to morbidity and mortality related to larger psychosocial and health problems. Within the Latino U.S. community, gay men continue to carry the brunt of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. They account for over half of all AIDS cases among Latino males, a percentage that is higher in the Western United States, where Latino gay men represent 80–90% of all AIDS cases among Latino males. No sound policy or effective programs that address HIV/AIDS in Latino communities could be developed without taking into account the particular social and structural factors that place Latino gay men at risk. In this spirit, we offer a critical review of the research literature from the perspective of social, structural, and environmental forces that explain the disproportionate burden of HIV in this most affected subgroup of Latinos.
